    I just got an 09 RT... They are rated at 375hp, but I can tell that it's really tuned out...
    I agree, might be a drivers race...

    I've raced one and seen them at the track. TA FTW should be easy. The RT just weighs too much. Usually they run right at 14.0 @ 101 or so. You are faster than that, right? Now if it's an SRT-8, that is another thing entirely!

    I drove the RT and an SRT8. RT no sweat, you got him with both car stock. The SRT8, it will all be up to the driver.

    ^^^ I agree

    Both cars are handicaped by weight and a mandatory 2.82 axle ratio.
    R/T = Easy Prey
    SRT = Drivers Race

    its not a drivers race, they are both autos so it really depends on who floors it faster.

    That is not what it's all about. You can still F%&^ up the launch in an auto and lose.

    T/A FTW.

    As long as it's just an RT model you should win. I drove an Black SRT8 and planet dodge that had shipping damage on a door I painted and had to w/s and buff some scrathes on a few Orange ones and its an ok car. Now a 09 with a SRT with a stick, I need to drive one of those, that should really make that motor shine. The autos in those are ok in an RT I guess but has no buisness in an SRT8. just mu opinion.

    I would think the T/A has a serious weight advantage, that the stock Charger wont be able to overcome.

    ^I agree
    my car is near stock and i was able to take the srt8 both from a dig and a roll, as long as you can drop the right gear, for you it would be third I guess.

    It's all a game of traction. SRT8 I think you might have trouble .
